A compilation of teachings on the seven contemplations, an ancient system of mind-training (lojong)
teachings that has been preserved as part of a rare set of instructions
on Dzogchen, or the Great Perfection, this book is unique because
although the lojong teachings of the Kadam tradition are well known,
this is the first time the mind-training teachings from the Dzogchen
tradition have been presented in an English translation, and most
Western scholars and practitioners are unaware that such mind-training
techniques even exist in Dzogchen. The contemplations themselves are
vividly described, and some unfold as dramatic stories in which the
meditator imagines himself or herself as the main character. Thus, they
are quite accessible for beginning practitioners.
